Share the Seminary Love – Win $50 and a Book

by on January 20, 2008

Want to win a $50 amazon card?

At goingtoseminary.com I dream of the day when I’ll give away an actual scholarship (my goal is to have a $1000 scholarship available by this time next year). Until then, I have to start small… So, for our first competition the prize will be a $50 gift card to amazon.com and a new copy of A Reader’s Greek New Testament. While it is not a scholarship… you could consider this a small book stipend. (Thanks to Bible Geeks Gone Wild for the book donation.)

THE COMPETITION:
Between now (January 20th) and February 14 the site that refers the most visitors to goingtoseminary.com will win a $50 amazon gift card.

THE RULES:

  1. Competition is open to anyone who has a blog or website (not just seminary students).
  2. Visitors must come from your website to be tracked and credited to your tally.
  3. Encouraging people to click a link multiple times is against the rules. So, no posts like this: “I’m trying to win $50 so click this link 10 times a day for me”
  4. You may, personally, only use a link on your site ONCE per day.
  5. Visitors from your site will be counted from the time of this post through 11:59 pm on February 13th, 2008. The winner will be announced on February 14th (get it? share the love… February 14… get it?).
  6. This is the first competition I’ve ever run, so I reserve the right to add rules if I catch any shady activity.

IDEAS TO HELP YOU WIN:

  • I created a bunch of link icons below. Feel free to copy the code and paste it into your sidebar on on your website. I have them for both white and colored backgrounds.
  • Write a post about something you’ve read at goingtoseminary.com and link back to the article.
  • Write a review of goingtosemianry.com and link to the site.
  • If you use wordpress, add the goingtoseminary.com feed into the rss sidebar widget
  • Be creative… we’re talking about $50 here… that’s like 2 or 3 books!

WHY A COMPETITION:

Well, the truth is that we’ll have more of these in the future… this is just the first one. I’m thinking that the next one might be the most creative non-web advertisement (as suggested by Shaun). Anyway, this is just a fun way to help get the word out about the site and all the resources I’m trying to make available here… That, and I like to give things away.
